"The Waiting Room" as written by Anthony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Michael Rutherford and Steve Hackett....
He panics, feels around for a stone and hurls it at the brightest
point. The sound of breaking
glass echoes around the cave. As his vision is restored he catches
sight of two golden gloves
about one foot in diameter hovering away down the tunnel. When they
disappear a
resounding crack sears across the roof, and it collapses all around
him. Our hero is trapped
once again.
"This is it" he thinks, failing to move any of the fallen rocks

    General CommentThis is probably not a good song to listen to in the dark. Creepy sounds keep building up in the cave that Rael is in, until he panics and throws a stone at the source of this weird white light, which causes the roof to cave in. I love that you can hear the sound of the rock being thrown, and the jam at the end could be a musical representation of rocks falling. I guess Rael developed this fear of the dark when he was trapped in the cage earlier on this album...
